Astelia chathamica 'Silver Spear' is a hardy, clump-forming perennial with long, arching, silver sword-like leaves drooping at the tips. It produces yellow flowers in spring, from female plants followed by orange berries in summer. However it rarely produces flowers when planted in Ireland. It is the foliage that is spectacular. Use as an architectural plant in a patio container or in garden borders. In very cold winters, in exposed areas, plants may suffer frost damage and will benefit from protection. Position in moist, well-drained soil and in full sun to partial shade. Height/Spread: 1.2mx1.2m after 10-20 years.
